Steve Clemons: Bush's speech was major defeat for Cheney

Steve Clemons reports that Bush's speech in which he announced that the U.S. was no longer going to operate the secret foreigh Gulags for rendered prisoners was a major defeat for the group of Cheney, Addingington, John Bolton and others.

I'll not try to summarize his post, partly because I am very suspicious that any action by Bush cannot be good (at best it will be irrelevant but more likely just misleading and over-simplified), and partly because I don't think I can do justice for Steve's depth of sources and understanding of the whole issue.

Let me recommend his posting, however. Go read it.
